  • Immigration
    Jan 8, 2013
    Im flying from LHR to IAH to catch a connection flight to LIT in May. I was just wondering if 2hrs 35mins is enough time to clear immigration and to catch my next flight.


    1. As you did not indicate which airline you arrive at & depart from, I suggest you open then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text. 2. Make sure your first airline will transfer bags to your connecting airline - if not, you need to check in your bag at the departure terminal's airline counter. Either way, you have plenty of time for transfer.


    Im Flying with UA both Depart & Arrival. I will be classed as an Alien but do you reckon thats still enough time ? I always get paranoid when flying alone.

    Dec 29, 2012
    My daughter flight out on Delta 9387 from Houston IAH to Amtersdam on 12/29/2012. What terminal she need to check in?


    At IAH, Del uses Terminal A (gates 1-15 & 17-30 at either side of the gate area.)

  • International flights
    Dec 20, 2013
    I am picking up someone who is flying an international flight. Is there a place to park and go in? How long does it take to go through customs?


    For customs work take at least 2 to 3 hrs in hand, and place is available for parking.


    Does "in hand" mean it takes two to three hours after you land to clear customs? Is the waiting area at terminal C or E?


  • From BZE to YEG w/ stop in IAH
    Dec 17, 2012
    I'm going from Belize to Edmonton Canada with a 3 hour layover in IAH. I was wondering if I have to clear US customs upon arrival in IAH and again in YEG. And if so is 3 hours enough time to get between terminals? Flying Air Canada and United


    As I do not know which airline you arrive at & depart from, I suggest you open, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text. Note that as an international arrival at IAH, you need to go through TSA & Customs clearance located in the International Arrivals building, accessible from both Terminals E & C. (IAH has Terminals A through E - TD being the International terminal), after customs clearance and baggage re-check, the inter-terminal train (below ground) will take you to your connecting Terminal. As YEG has a US customs agreement, I don't think you will need to go through that process again on arrival at Edmonton. 3 hours at IAH is plenty!


    You will have to go trough customs in Canada since the US agreement works when you come back, since you clear US Customs at Edmonton Airport but there ´s no Canadian Customs at Houston. Anyhow you wont have to reckeck your bags since its Int´l to Int´l and you should look up for ONE STOP at IAH since i believe it applies for Int´l to Int´l flight when you dont have to re check luggage.


  • Hotels with 24 hour airport shuttle
    Nov 25, 2012
    Does anyone know which hotels near the airport have shuttles that run 24 hours? Thanks


    IAH has its own 'Airport Marriott Hotel (tel. 281-443-2310 /800-228-9290), linked to the airside of the terminals. For other options open

    where do you go to pick up a passager arriving at terminal a


    Best place to meet at IAH, Terminal A, is on the baggage claim level, near the information desk.


  • getting from Term C to B
    Oct 19, 2012
    What's the fastest way to get from Terminal C to B? Is there a walkway connection?


    At IAH Airport there is no walkway connection between TC & TB - you need to take the TerminaLink train which runs inside security. Follow signs.


    Thank for clarifying... Now, will 50 minutes work? If I get on the train from TC, will it go directly to TB or will it have to go to D, E, A, then B? Worried about connection time - if I miss it, I'm stuck in Houston for the night. Thanks again.


  • Bring pet from Europe to Houston IAH
    Nov 3, 2012
    Hi, I would like to bring our "family" dog from Europe to Texas. The dog is about 18 lbs, and being my elderly mother's companion, we would like to arrange for her the safest and least stressful flight to the US. Money is not an issue, as long as she either flies in the cabin with us, or in a "humane" environment. Please help !


    Rules regarding taking pets onboard an aircraft differ from airline to airline. Many of them allow dogs (in a kennel) on the seat next to its owner, but charging the second seat. Hopefully someone will drive your mother to the Airport; park the car, find out where the pet relief area is before putting the dog in the kennel and loading it onto a baggage cart located outside the terminal. From there, a Skycap can accompany her & the dog (which is not allowed inside the terminal unless in a kennel) through security check and on to her gate. When making airline reservations, do state all these needs. Also contact your Airport for information.


    We're flying from Frankfurt to IAH in December. You can take cats and small dogs in the cabin in a soft carrier bag (you have to be able to fit it under the seat in front for takeoff and landing. KLM and Air France also allows small pets in the cabin. British Airways doesn't. BA is a rip-off for shipping pets.


  • Onsite parking
    Sep 18, 2012
    Is there a onsite covered parking facility that will accomodate a vehicle that is 85" tall


    While 'C Parking' located between Terminals C & D/E is quoted as 'covered parking' I suggest you call 281-233-1730 or visit


  • Arriving passenger
    Sep 17, 2012
    I have a family memeber flying into IAH who has never flown before. Is it possible to meet her at the gate to ensure she does not get lost?


    You will need to contact the airline for a special pass to meet your party at the gate. Otherwise, you can give her/him instructions on how to get to the baggage claim area, where you could meet up. (Open, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text indicating airlines and terminal connections.)


  • Arrival terminal
    Sep 17, 2012
    Arriving from Atlanta on Delta flight at 6.31pm. Which terminal must my friends come to meet me?


    At IAH, Delta uses Terminal A - which has in the center, as well as to the right & left of the entrance, escalators & elevators to the Baggage Claim - meet them there. (IAH's access road passes first Terminals D & C, which are connected, followed by Terminals B & A. Another option would be to use the free Cell Phone Lot ('Passenger Pickup Lot')--stay with your vehicle until your party has gathered luggage and calls you to be picked up at the curb. To access the lot, whether you're approaching the airport using John F. Kennedy Boulevard or Will Clayton Parkway, just follow the purple signs to the entrance.


  • Do i need shuttle to go to Terminal A?

    Do i need shuttle to go to Terminal C to Terminal A in IAH airport?


    On arrival at IAH at Terminal C, take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, and connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security.


  • walking time between terminal b and c
    Sep 11, 2012
    We will arrive at Terminal b and need to be at Terminal c how much time should i allow for to get from b to c.


    At IAH, on arrival at Terminal B, near gateway to gates B76 to B83A is the entrance to the TerminaLink train station which will take you to Terminal C with gates C29 to C33, C34 to C42, and C43 to C45.
